Re: Use the anti-shock. It really works.

Olympus cameras can be set to use a 1/8s anti-shock delay. This really eliminates the shutter shock.

Sure the E-M5 has a bit less shutter shock than the E-P5 according to most users but it definitely still has some and 1/8s delay solves the problem. THe E-M1 also has the problem but it now has a new feature to keep the shutter open at the expense of higher power consumption.

What is the "new feature to keep the shutter open at the expense of higher power consumption"?  (If you can just provide the term or name, I can find it on Google or in the manual.)
